I don’t collect things. My husband helped me declutter years ago. He can’t take a lot of stuff hanging around our house collecting dust. It drives him crazy.
Thankfully, the things I value the most are not things I can store on a shelf. They aren’t things that must be dusted or handled with care. Instead, my valuables are stored in my heart.
Jesus is at the center. He has a pretty good hold right there in the middle. He helps keep me steady.
My family takes up a good amount of the other space. I am so blessed to be a wife. A mom. A daughter. A sister. An Aunt. Each role is treasured. This side is so full it could burst.
Jesus has filled the other side of my heart with my friends.
To me, each and everyone of them has something special. Something to be valued. Something to be treasured.
Their fierceness. Their devotion. Their kindness. Their determination.
I want to bottle each thing up and take a little for myself.
They push me. They motivate me. They challenge me. They inspire me.
My heart would not be complete without them.
Thank you, my dear friends, for filling the other side of my heart.
Thank you for being part of my own special collection.
